Creole Day

Yesterday was Creole Day, an island wide celebration of creole culture, music, food, and attire. It was a day full of vibrant color, creole delicacies, and sounds of jing ping. I had the honor of sampling a full creole meal prepared by the loving hands of a hard-working Dominican woman. On the breakfast menu was…..




Salted Codfish




Farina Balls-this is ground cassava mixed with avocado and a dash of salt.



Roasted Breadfruit




Grated Cucumber Salad with Garlic




…& last but certainly not least…Cocoa Tea- made from fresh cocoa sticks and coconut milk.

It was quite an amazing meal, full of lots of scents and flavors.

The university celebrated Creole Day by hosting a creole lunch buffet out on the Subway deck. Bright plaid decorations hung from corner to corner and plaid shirts, skirts, and ties kept the eyes quite busy. A jing ping band was present entertaining everyone as they stood in line for their long-awaited creole meal of the independence season.
